Great trail, very scenic and lively. Walked it in the end of June, not many bugs or ticks.

A good workout. (We combined it with the Ridge Trail to total 14 miles.)The trail is well marked. Scenery is gorgeous. We met about 12 people along the trail. About 25% of the trail is actually gravel roads. Leaving 75% of wonderful trail. Not a lot of roots. I agree with previous comments. The recommendation for very experienced "adventurers" only likely is endurance -related. Ended up with one tick, no problem with mosquitos. Planning on hiking the 3 lakes trail next.

It was quite, just the sounds of nature. Still a lot of down trees on the trail you have to climb over. Would love to see them move these trailer into the woods. Seem like most of the trails where on rocky roads.

Great hike today. My first solo 10 mile hike. Well marked. A few spots where trees have fallen on the trail but it looks like they do a good job of getting them cleared.

Gorgeous scenery. But, please know that it's against the law to kill an endangered timber rattlesnake if you encounter one on the trail. They are shy by nature, and only about half their bites even contain venom. Either back off, be patient, and give it a chance to leave, or give it a wide berth and go around. We were sad to meet up with someone who apparently did not know how to handle the situation.

Did trail counter clockwise. Pretty muddy from rain night before. Great hike and nice distance. Marked very well.

Some stretches on gravel, personally not fond of gravel, everything else was great
Well maintained, challenging and long enough,

The difficulty comes from the elevation changes. It shares much of the same route as the Tecumseh trail- so it can seem confusing. There are a few water features but not as many as the three lakes trail, so bring water for your puppies.
There is a cave shelter, great back parking sites and a few creeks. Very secluded, even on a busy Sunday.
It's more like 11 miles than 10.8.

Great trail with the exception of the long stretches on the fire roads. Man, that gravel was brutal on our feet and ankles. Highly recommend this hike as long as you wear shoes suited for the rough rocks on roads.
